@dylee welcome to the forums! I see you are having issues with Docker on Windows Server 2016. How did you install Docker on this server?

I faced the error "dockerdefault_dockersearchindex.json does not exist" while trying to follow the instructions from the provided GitHub link. When attempting to install using Microsoft's guide, it appeared that the CE version is not compatible with Windows Server. As a result, I'm uncertain about the next steps for installing the Enterprise Edition (EE) version.

I also downloaded it by referring to this part: https://docs.docker.com/engine/install/binaries/#install-server-and-client-binaries-on-windows .

@dylee Can you take a look at the following link and install it using the command line option listed at the bottom?

https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/virtualization/windowscontainers/quick-start/set-up-environment?tabs=dockerce

Invoke-WebRequest -UseBasicParsing "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/microsoft/Windows-Containers/Main/helpful_tools/Install-DockerCE/install-docker-ce.ps1" -o install-docker-ce.ps1

Then, run this command:

.\install-docker-ce.ps1
